Caregan, Clan of the Earth
The Caregan (car-EGG-an) are a old, traditional Clan of Var. They have a closer relationship with Priddyn than most Var, and as such produce more Carreg Iachawr than any other Clan.
There are also a number of very skilled gem cutters among the Caregan. The less skilled Caregan tend to become miners or stoneworkers.
The Caregan resent the Methu for their lack of a connection to Priddyn, and distrust the Llanastr for their life on the surface, but hold all other Clans in good standing.
The Caregan tend to be solid, and favor black hair and brown eyes, earthy brownish skin, and tend to prefer browns and greys in their clothing. The menfolk favor luxurious beards, which they often braid.
The Caregan are generally serious and particularly pious. Staunch traditionalists, and a bit stodgy.
The Caregan Ceidwad of a hold is the oldest living Caregan, regardless of gender, who wants the position. Should the current Ceidwad die, become senile, or wish to resign, the next in line takes up the position.
